This is the first book I have ever read on anchor charts for 3-8 students. The charts are POWERFUL and really make an impact on instruction. I was lucky enough to watch Dr. Linder teach my own students, using two of these charts. the kids were glued to her! They used the chart as a visual aid and still beg for her to come back. Now, I create or refer to an anchor chart with every mini-lesson. If you aren't using charts with your students, you are missing a powerful instructional tool. Chart Sense can show you how!
-Natalie Casey, fifth grade teacherChart Sense is amazing! Roz takes all of the literature and informational text standards and shares tons of anchor charts that go with each chart. She includes lessons, book titles, and helpful hints for EVERY reading standard. This is my new go-to resource for teaching reading. It is simple, easy to use, and offers so much help. I wish I had this on the first day of school!
-Sarah Gladstone, middle school teacher
From the Author
This book has been such a labor of love! Each chart in this book was created with real students in real classrooms across the nation. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful middle school and elementary school teachers that let me into their classrooms to work with their students. The Common Core reading standards are made plain and simple for students through the use of visual aids. I hope that this book is a starting point for all reading teachers charged with simplifying and demystifying the standards.
